When using my Macbook Pro, I can have separate users who have their own spaces on the computer. Each user is not able to see the other users files or program installations. I would like to do the same for my Windows 10 computer.

I know how to set up different users for Windows 10, but it seems each user can navigate using the Windows Explorer to the other users files. I require privacy for each user files and what programs they have installed on the same PC hardware.

Can you please help me understand how to achieve this?

Thank you!

Hi GB,

navigate to a user folder, mark it and then right click and look for > Give access to > Remove access or Specific people.

MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP ALL YOUR FILES BEFORE TRYING THIS; I HAVE NEVER DONE IT SO WATCH OUT!.


An example window showing "Specific people". I hope it helps. :)
